Through its Cascades Energy subsidiary, Cascades acquires Boralex, a joint venture founded in 1982 by a group of businesspeople.
Boralex retains its name, which comes from the respective identities of its 3 original companies: LaduBORo, ALbany Oil and EXar. The head office is established in Kingsey Falls. So this is, in a way, the official year of our birth!
A transitional year for us: reduction of our thermal asset burden to favour the acquisition of long-term contracts in the wind and hydroelectric sectors.
This financially advantageous strategy leads us to develop and build the Témiscouata wind farms in Quebec (76 MW), five wind farms in France (totalling 123 MW) and the Jamie Creek hydroelectric plant (22 MW) in British Columbia.
Acquisition of Enel Green Power France, including its plants already in operation (186 MW), those under construction (10 MW) and its 310 MW projects in development.
This makes us the largest independent producer of wind energy in France, in addition to increasing our capacity by 25%, to total 940 MW worldwide.
